Squirrel in the attic but I can't find the hole. What do I do?
I went up during the day to the location of where it all happened but couldn't find any light coming through.
At night, when it was there and I went up, it was long gone by the time I poked my head out. I figured I could've glimpsed at it as it ran through the entrance of it's hole but no.
Should I simply set up one of those one way cage traps with bait or would I run the risk of trapping one and not trapping the others? I've read that they're smart enough to know that once one is trapped, that they'll stay away from similar traps. Not to mention there's the whole issue with baby squirrels if I do trap the mom.
I should note that I've only been through one section of the house and in the area where the grinding takes place. Given the home has an attic at 1 1/2 feet of height, it's a tad difficult to go through it. Not to mention there's no flooring so it makes it all the more harder.
I have been on the roof top and I didn't find anything at all anywhere. I've also looked around the perimeter of the home to find holes.
So what should my next step be?
My plan will be to do a very thorough search in the attic while the sun is still out while trying to not fall through the ceiling and to set up the trap in the location of where I last heard it.
